Stayed in Znojmo for 4 consecutive days during a cold, but beautifully sunny January. This viewpoint comes as a big surprise even if you´ve seen other parts of the interesting town, and it´s among the best of the whole of the Czech republic. You enter via a small, signed pathway next to the old brewery buildings. There are some facilities,... More

Closed when there but a good looking bit of history. Cool beer on terrace alongside should be a highlight in good weather as marvellous view of Dyje river, valley and waterworks. Go and find it.

This is a must when you are in Znojmo. A great piece of puzzle to add into the Czech history. Loving it!

I didn't find "Rotunda" itself interesting. Just very old circle building. ..but the View on a Cathedral and a valley is amazing! !

Only small group of tourists in limited hours can be entered into this exciting rotunda. Middle-Age, secret and history is surrounding you the whole guided tour. Time of your visit is limited, no speech is allowed except of the guide due to strict rules protecting the climate inside. Thanks to our forefathers we have such nice jewel in our rich... More

I thought this was a pretty cool looking building, especially accompanied by the other scenery around. It didn't take long to have a look and take a few pictures.

I visited this place with friends in June 2014. Well worth a visit. The views up here and along the surrounding walkway is spectacular. The Rotunda is very much an ancient church structure. Walking along the area here and along the narrow alleyways of Znojmo gives one a sense of a very old town with a rich and long history.... More

Beautiful view of the river and the town. Unfortunately, the rotunda itself was closed, so we just walked around it. After the repair works should've much better

We didn't actually go in the rotunda but the grounds it is in are lovely with some smashing views of the river dyje.

Even though the rotunda doesn't look like anything special from the outside, it's definitely worth the fee and the waiting time. The 15 min. or so one is allowed to stay is simply hard to describe in words. It justifies the trip to Znojmo, which otherwise is a quiet, average border town.
